Hillary and Trump share same Delaware tax haven addressAs it turns out, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump share something pertinent in common, after all — a tax haven cozily nested inside the United States.

This brick-and-mortar, nondescript two-story building in Wilmington, Delaware would be awfully crowded if its registered occupants — 285,000 companies — actually resided there. What’s come to be known as the “Delaware loophole” — the unassuming building at 1209 North Orange Street — has become, as the Guardian described, “famous for helping tens of thousands of companies avoid hundreds of millions of dollars in tax.” More…

dark moneyDo they take us for fools?

American Action Network. Patriot Majority U.S.A. American Future Fund. Americans for Responsible Leadership. Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow. Those are the names of top electioneering nonprofit organizations — the key Dark Money conduits into our elections.

These innocuous names are virtually impossible to distinguish. By any reasonable standard, the groups exist for the purpose of influencing elections. They are among the leading purveyors of the attack ads blanketing TV airwaves during ever-expanding election seasons. Unfortunately, whether or not we are fooled by the interchangeable names of these groups, they are able to make suckers of us all. More…

United Technologies CEO Louis Chenevert golden parachuteA young black girl got a civics lesson in dystopian society sitting in the front row of the Senate Banking hearing this past Tuesday. Her expression was that of someone watching a Halloween horror film. The young girl was the daughter of Lisa Fairfax, a George Washington University law professor who brought her family members along to share her confirmation hearing to potentially become a Commissioner at the Securities and Exchange Commission. Hopefully, what the young girl observed will be enough to head her off in a career direction of white collar criminal law.

Senator Joe Donnelly delivered a heartfelt review of what is going on in his home state of Indiana, asking the two SEC nominees, Hester Peirce and Fairfax, what role the SEC should play in the matter. More…

Here’s what Americans don’t understand about Nordic countries

Here’s what Americans don’t understand about Nordic countries

Norway, misunderstood by AmericansA Nordic person myself, I left my native Finland seven years ago and moved to the U.S. Although I’m now a U.S. citizen, I hear these kinds of comments from Americans all the time—at cocktail parties and at panel discussions, in town hall meetings and on the opinion pages. Nordic countries are the way they are, I’m told, because they are small, homogeneous “nanny states” where everyone looks alike, thinks alike, and belongs to a big extended family.

This, in turn, makes Nordic citizens willing to sacrifice their own interests to help their neighbors. Americans don’t feel a similar kinship with other Americans, I’m told, and thus will never sacrifice their own interests for the common good. What this is mostly taken to mean is that Americans will never, ever agree to pay higher taxes to provide universal social services, as the Nordics do. Thus Bernie Sanders, and anyone else in the U.S. who brings up Nordic countries as an example for America, is living in la-la land. More…

Exposing the Libyan Agenda: A Closer Look at Hillary’s Emails

Exposing the Libyan Agenda: A Closer Look at Hillary’s Emails

We came, we saw, he diedAfter 1944, the US dollar traded interchangeably with gold as global reserve currency. When the US was no longer able to maintain the dollar’s gold backing, in the 1970s it made a deal with OPEC to “back” the dollar with oil, creating the “petro-dollar.” Oil would be sold only in US dollars, which would be deposited in Wall Street and other international banks.

In 2001, dissatisfied with the shrinking value of the dollars that OPEC was getting for its oil, Iraq’s Saddam Hussein broke the pact and sold oil in euros. Regime change swiftly followed, accompanied by widespread destruction of the country. In Libya, Qaddafi also broke the pact; but he did more than just sell his oil in another currency.

For decades, Libya and other African countries had been attempting to create a pan-African gold standard. Libya’s al-Qadhafi and other heads of African States had wanted an independent, pan-African, “hard currency.” More…

Down the Trump Rabbit Hole: Manufacturing Consent

Down the Trump Rabbit Hole: Manufacturing Consent
by Cognitive Dissonance

the commonsThe myth of the presidential ‘elected’ office is far too important to the Empire to allow just anybody to serve in that position. All candidates for the office are carefully screened by the Empire’s court before being allowed a ‘serious’ run for office. This doesn’t mean mainstream outsiders are prevented from pursuing the office, since allowing the oddballs to run helps support the presidential and democratic myth.

Any ‘rouge’ candidate who doesn’t fit the desired parameters is eventually marginalized and pushed aside by the inability to raise significant campaign funds from court members, by the use of the state’s controlled mass media to discredit the individual (and groups supporting the candidate) and, if need be, by more direct persuasion such as blackmail, threats and financial sabotage.

our system favors corporations over people

It is a fundamental paradox of our time that in the name of market competition we have created a system that unifies corporations while dividing people and forcing them into global competition for corporate favor.
